Trooper Husky Rescue is a no-kill Siberian Husky and Malamute special needs rescue operation, taking in those with medical problems or special needs, including being heartworm positive, having diabetes, seizures, being a tripawd, etc. "We also take in older dogs and those who are not perfect!" they state. Their mission is "to provide a safe haven for dogs that have been abused, neglected, abandoned and for those with special needs. Our goal is to provide them with the tender loving care that they deserve until we can find them a good home with the proper screening."
The also state on their website, "Our rescue is in our home and some of the dogs are in foster homes, so please call before coming out to see our dogs. Some are not used to being around people and will be very nervous at first. We take in surrenders from owners who want what is the best for their Husky or Malamute. In some cases there has been a change in their home environment such as an owner being deployed or financial problems in addition to other unfortunate situations. We also have a selection of foster homes that will house the Huskies and Malamutes for as long as it takes to find a warm and loving home. While Trooper Husky Rescue tries its best to take in those in need, we do not always have room. If you have a Husky or Malamute that needs to be surrendered, a signed surrender form and all vet records are needed."
Here is a video clip from when Trooper Husky Rescue, and handsome "Brutus," a special needs Husky with a digestive disorder, were guests on CNY Central News:
I think folks who rescue Huskies, and all pets, are amazing, thoughtful, angels on Earth. And to rescue those who have special needs or medical issues is so commendable. As a mom to a special needs Husky (as most of you know, my wooly Husky "Gibson" is an Epi-dog, a dog with Canine Epilepsy). I could not even imagine someone abandoning their dog simply because he has seizures, only three legs, or is not "perfect." I tip my hat to those, like Ron and his volunteer staff and foster parents who open up their hearts and homes to these wonderful animals.
Trooper Husky Rescue is fairly new, organized in 2010, and they have applied for their non-profit status. Recently, in addition to the special needs Huskies they have, they took in dogs in need from the flooding that put the city of Oneida in a state of emergency. Here is a video from CNY Central News:
